2017 Jul 11/ By / 0 comment

If you must have a photo of your catch, why not photgraph the fish in the water? Otherwise please follow these guidelines.

  • Keep the fish in the water until you are ready to take the photo
  • Do not keep the fish out of the water for more than a few seconds at a time. Dunk the fish between shots.
  • Kneel or squat with the fish, or pose in the water, to ensure that a dropped fish will not be injured or damaged.
  • Hold the fish in a manner to give adequate support. No fingers in the gills or eyes.
  • Cradle heavy fish.
  • Avoid squeezing, especially at the throat where the heart is located.

  1. Kola Peninsula, Sidorovka River. On salmon streams the fishing is done mostly with a guide who helps the fisherman to land the fish and release it with no harm. Sometimes it is necessary to revive the fish for half hour prior to release .
